Every Friday, I take my favorite “picks” from my week on the web and post them here for you to enjoy. But before I announce The Shiksa Picks, here is a quick recap of this week’s posts on TheShiksa.com– just in case you missed them.
THIS WEEK ON THESHIKSA.COM
L’Shanah Tova New Yorkers! On Sunday, September 25 at 2:00pm and 3:30pm I’ll be cooking up some Rosh Hashanah delights at Zabar’s New York! You can find me in the Housewares mezzanine, where I’ll be demonstrating some of my favorite Rosh Hashanah recipes. This is a free event. Hope to see you there!
Pomegranate Molasses Brisket – a slow roasted brisket infused with the rich flavor of pomegranate molasses, garlic, and spice.
Saffron Rice – a simple, savory side dish for Rosh Hashanah or any day. Delicious and easy to prepare, with lots of flavor. One of my favorites!
Win a fabulous gift box from Zabar’s New York, including a batch of their world famous rugelach! It’s super easy to enter. Click the link for details! Contest ends at 5:00pm PST this evening.
Teach kids the meaning behind a fun Jewish holiday tradition – with cupcakes! A terrific family project. Includes a printable graphic sheet so you can make them at home!
THE SHIKSA’S WEEKLY WEB PICKS
Here are some of my favorite picks from the web this week.
Because it’s Friday and I feel like ice cream. I’ll take mine with hot fudge sauce, please.
Struggling to create a gluten free Rosh Hashanah menu? Check out the Gluten Free Canteen, where blogger Lisa has created this beautiful GF honey cake recipe.
Gil Marks, author of the mouthwatering Encyclopedia of Jewish Food (Wiley, 2010), explains that there are five foods the Talmud says should be eaten on Rosh Hashanah — not because of their taste, “but because their names sounded like symbolic things.”
My new food blogging friend Andrew has an awesome site called Eating Rules. It’s all about eating natural, healthy, and unprocessed. Join his October Unprocessed challenge (I did!) and challenge yourself to a month of eating naturally. More info on Andrew’s blog.
Every week, I post the Twitter accounts that make me smile with their
fun or interesting tweets. Here are this week’s picks…
